How can we apply physics to a
bike that is making a turn on a flat track verus a banked track?

I appreciate all comments!  Thanks to all who helped make this release better!  I took your comments into consideration and made significant changes to my project.

Notice that at one moment in time the friction is static!  Therefore we can use static "MU's."


  1. Excellent job!
    I really appreciate how you were willing to make adjustments as you went deeper into the topic.

  2. I agree with Ms. Gende, great job! This is a very complicated topic and you explained it well. I like that you mentioned the particle approximation as the idea of Lance as an "infinite shrimp" with no height. I think your conclusions are valid. If you do this presentation for people who don't know physics, you may want to try and find some verbal explanations for the equations. Overall, Good Job!
